    grounded.. dad taking my phone away & i want to keep my number

    Okay so here's the story.

    I have a Motorola Droid and my dad took it away and is going to start using it for himself next week.

    He said I can't have it back til my birthday. Which is in damn Feb 2011!!

    I have a spare Droid because my friend didn't like it and gave it to me HEHE. My dad has no idea xD

    I was wondering if I could transfer my number to somebody like T-Mobile and hold the # til I'm 18 and make my own vzw account then?? I really like my # and way too many ppl know my number too.. thanks!

    Maybe you should worry more about fixing your mistake, instead of going behind your father's back. Which, IME will inevitably make it worse.

    hmm

    Not entirely sure but i do believe you would have to cancel the verizon account,but im sure your dad would find out.Then you would have to purchase another phone from a different company.I think you have to change numbers when you switch wireless phone companies.No matter what you do to keep your number your dad will have to find out.

    Just get a prepaid phone till feb or beg for your phone back.Do some chores!

    If I was a dad and my son had a droid and I didn't... I'd ground him too ;]

    Have you told him this? Maybe he'll be a bit more understanding then.

    You can take a phone number to any service provider , but this can't be done without the approval of the account holder . You can port your number to T-Mobile , but you can't use a Droid on T-mobile because they are using different technologies , actually you can only use the Droid on VZ .
    If you try to create an account with T-Mobile and take the number from VZ , the VZ account will be canceled for that number and you have to pay an early termination fee of 350$ it you had a 2 yr contract with them .
    So either convince your father to give you that line add a second one for him , or start giving your friends a new phone number

    can i make a suggestion. First whatever you did must have been pretty good since he is taking that away. Second you are not old enough to sign a contract for a cell phone so you are outta luck till at least 18 some states 19. Third if you had learned from your mistake you wouldnt be trying to go behind your dads back and do this. fourth you dont want your friends talking to your dad raises all kinds of alarm bells in my head. Sounds like maybe you didnt learn your lesson after all.

    Lastly a little fatherly advise( i have 4 children) if you sincerely appologize and ask if there is some way to keep your phone and actually be very sincere you might have a chance depending on what you did wrong to begin with. Also depends on your history with your parents. I can say this if your dad is anything like me and he senses some bs you will be outta luck. take it or leave it. hope this helps.
